we've just seen history being made russia can do it i love russian see and see this madness it's so amazing get it if i can see if he's the best he saved us he won the match against spain willie's spain is a great match. so may seem to protein is the way of the much this is great so happy we can can have a shia shia very. minute. it's not just russian fancy it's also people from all over the world that we can see the host that they are playing in the quarter finals. were suspended for for the losers on this occasion spain. hopes of a second well cup title but this is the taste of disappointment for them but i think in a spanish team today. it is in play. dead
again if he slowly so as not only. spain we rush by the football. everything is possible he will take a look at the for the final i know this is outfront shade over the years why first take on france look for the top left of the draw on the few more things have done the hard work and made it through for the last russia and it's all right now they will face croatia that much will be taking place in sochi on saturday july the seventh so just six days for the teams to recover a lot of those press especially in the russia we're looking at really tie today the denmark croatia match she went to sit on it went to penalties as well as for you a bit more about that was a lightning start to the flush match of fuel consumed with three which was about sixty sixty one seconds on the court puts denmark. heads must start for denmark
they couldn't really do much with that lead the gracious trip back within is four minutes played at this point as mario men seek it got him into the cross into and in his shot so you level the schools so for when it's played and it was warm warm at this point the match continued out. the food the draw the all go opportunities the notes that was my sequence make it one what is it at that point we could be in for another absolute goal fest but it turned out well worn at full time it became very very cagey exit sign went pretty much the same way until i actually played only nicks that side for a shit got a penalty it went to look about drish best of player is already scored a penalty in this competition and that's just what you say do we send you to the penalty shootout and that was the first one for ten more christine eriksson so it's a test this was a licking and no the saving it is to the one in it's all his father was going
absolutely crazy the divine racket teached getting the goal that put through a shift through to the quarterfinals draw on a push michael's senior and genius that. disappointed of course for denmark two i should congratulate them three to face unexpectedly russia in the last day it's been a day of records well of the two thousand and eighteen world cup as read as is being incredible is the first time the russian made it through to the course of finals after the shocking victory of spain western and shot best in show it was also versus first in a penalty shootout to the wild cats a guy and in the later game of the day creationists and denmark out of the tournament also winning on penalties. in other news this week donald trump invited me putin will hold their first official meeting on july sixteenth in finland but as our guys do have reports not everyone is happy about the summit. trump is acting strange stranger than
usual he's being awful nice to russia getting along with russia is a good thing it's not a fan that is. taken by itself the these sensitive might rub on the wrong way what he says next caused a storm he gave up crimea as last week with you or. anybody else again president obama gave up i mean. that was certainly given up by. the media interpreted it as trump potentially willing to recognize crimea as russia now trump he'd be hounded out of office the same week but reacting to the summit visuals of the diplomatic. the fact the two
presidents a meeting engage in insisting dialogue is something i support i believe it's time to talk shop because to the actions of a neighbor from state to state the pundits though showed no such restraint they're in doubt we have no idea what kind of information donald trump will say just bragging to vladimir putin a different binoculars and tell me all the spies are because they want to prove how tough he is the russians clearly showing that they are in the driver's seat on this race dangerous we saw the last time when the russians came in visit there at the white house where he gave away classified information that is not the way to approach a summit with president putin the way approach summit is to have done your homework and go in united in a way that doesn't play into the narrative that president xi and president putin the been working overtime to push that the president has played into that narrative in very very dangerous ways. from reasonable concern to outright tara
but there could be another explanation for trump's behavior the known game trumps bluff but you're ready to spend more money. me bring. something that would make the united states nato trump says his allies on spending enough trade trump says europe china have it too good he wants the changed things and no one's playing bull looking at the latest decisions of presidents try someone could see them saying push trends like that who needs enemies we must be prepared. we will have to follow trumps a businessman but the thing is in these jeans and if you will pals on being pals you need to get them in life and what better way than the fia than
using big bad russia they get everyone to behave the fact is that it's important for the leaders of these two countries to meet their wide range of issues despite the differences between us where at those present trump and president putin think they may be able to find constructive solutions i'd like to hear someone say that's a bad idea you said. i don't really address what i've written in the past or but i said on television it's all out there right now on an advisor to president trump it's his agenda that we're pursuing and that's the agenda that i intend to advance and that john bolton amongst the most militant whole case u.s. politicians who said that russia's alleged meddling in the u.s. elections was an act of war look at it this way if trump's a russian agent he just. lou is cover if he isn't
a russian spy he just pulled the entire world and is likely to get all his misbehaving allies back in live. the german interior minister is planning to resign in protest against chancellor merkel's immigration policies that is according to national media quoting sources within the minister's party party's post there has more. well the situation is extremely fluid and at this stage there are a lot of rumors but nothing has been confirmed as you say the interior minister horst c. hoffa has reportedly threatened to resign we are however receiving additional reports that he's currently in private meetings with members of his party who are trying to encourage him not to resign now there was a press conference that was supposed to be given some several hours ago it's been postponed three times so there's obviously a lot happening behind the scenes that we're not exactly aware of what is going on the issue at stake is essentially what germany is going to do with the migrant
crisis now the interior minister gave the german chancellor angela merkel a two week ultimatum that expired on sunday july the first and essentially he was calling for a european solution now there was an e.u. summit that was held thursday and friday and merkel obviously felt that she did find that he would pee and solution at that summit but it certainly feels and seems as if the interior minister mr c. hoffa thinks otherwise what we are hearing and this was a comment given by a party official reportedly to some media is that he feels he has no choice but to resign out of credibility and because it affects his credibility in terms of leading his own party we also understand that he feels that he has no alternative but to turn back migrants who arrive at germany's borders return them back to the countries where they were registered in this obviously flies in the face of most schools open door policy for the two are at loggerheads over what to do over the issue of migrants. we are sure that we have the rights immediately some migrants
back from the border was all of those might open up. either a front a solution so that an effort can be your own people feel that we are guided by values and that we advocate multilateralism and not you newly released or no one will believe you have made a sort of strongest argument now if mr c. hoffa in fact resigns this will see a breakup. of a seventeen year old lions between his christian social union party and that of angela merkel's what it does mean is that she will either remain the leader of a minority government or she'll have to call for new elections and at the same time she's likely to face increased pressure and opposition from within a party so essentially the german chancellor is fighting for her own political survival the two leaders did hold a two hour meeting on saturday night but that was described as ineffective and since sunday evening they have been meeting both here in berlin and with their
respective parties and we're waiting to see essentially what announcement he ultimately makes political scientist verner parts of the standoff within the german leadership is far from over apparently until america doesn't want to move or is able to move you to european obligations and for the crucial social union it is of utmost importance not to lose its credibility the promise has been there see all the would stop immigration of those who are not entitled to go through a asylum procedure in germany and if he does not keep with this promise the christian social union will lose all of its credibility apparently so christian democratic union is unveiling to accommodate these needs christian social union and as a result it was a much ng bo's parties on friday e.u.
leaders managed to agree on a new strategy for tackling migration to the bloc they struck a deal that will see some member states do more to help the countries hardest hit by the influx comes after weeks of political infighting triggered by the new italian government's hardline stance. it's tricky traceless response to the situation with aquarius is proof of a form of cynicism and a lack of responsibility on behalf of the italian government when faced with this dramatic humanitarian disaster. my duty is to defend the borders of this country which cannot become a refugee camps only those have the right to enter it's legal and it's their other posts they can go to spain france malta and the netherlands.
doorstep of europe regardless of how vulnerable they are all what horrors the a scape and measures that a few years ago were deemed unacceptable now are being common talk so do you think that the e.u. is. spelling down to the far right that's just not the program right and list the program is immigration. but. they already had. clashes have broken out in portland in the u.s. state of oregon between groups of nationalists and anti-fascists. it started as an anti immigration march and by the right wing patriot prayer group fighting broke out when they were confronted by rival rally police moved in using
crowd control weapons to break up the groups four people were taken to the hospital and another four were asked. a prominent anti child abuse campaigner has been arrested by the f.b.i. in new york over allegations of paedophilia artie's killam up and comments. twenty two year old joel davis is outspoken in his activism against sexual violence that's what makes his recent arrest so disturbing joel davis has been arrested and it's alleged that he attempted to engage a minor in sexual activity and he's been distributing child pornography now beyond the basic charges the actual details of the case are pretty disturbing the f.b.i. picked up davis in a sting operation now they revealed some of the text messages he exchanged with undercover agents what's about to follow is rather disturbing but it's actually not the most disturbing part of the correspondence during the course of the text
conversations davis stated that he is into children ages zero plus and has no limits davis told him because the offices that he previously had sexual experiences with a nine month old boy a six year old go and a seven year old boy now according to the f.b.i. davis actually asked to the undercover agents to send him explicit videos and photographs of children the department of justice says they are appalled by the case conduct and they just against children even this is unfathomable as it is sickening and as this case demonstrates to enforcement keep its watchful eye on the darkest corners of the internet to bring printed says to justice davis is a long time outspoken advocate of human rights he had a organization with over five thousand people it was very well funded he gave regular media appearances in order acted and respected in peacetime then you're not going to be able to protect them or respect them in conflict like you need to when you do need the rule of law and so many conflicts across the globe children's
bodies are quickly becoming sites of violence where rape is used to terrorize and to great entire communities now davis went on to actually give a ted talk on the subject of expertise that it was two months ago and the video is now unavailable when he was giving an interview to n.b.c. about how he combined charity work with his studies he said he feels like he's living a double life those are words that would come back to haunt him able to mop and r.t. new york that doesn't from we'll be back in about thirty three minutes with more news you're watching our two international.
twenty forty you know bloody revolution two two demonstrations going from being relatively peaceful political protests to be creasing the violent revolution is always spontaneous or is it your goal here. is put to do it through the belief that i'm still in the middle of the former ukrainian president recalls the events of twenty forty and. those who took. it invested over five billion dollars to assist ukraine in these another goal that will ensure a secure and prosperous and democratic.
party. and welcome to the world the part of the free player of the reciprocal that's the vision of trade that their current american administration wants to implement but it's raising of tariffs and division of all trade agreements when america sneezes can the rest of the world avoid catching the protectionist bieber well to discuss that i'm now joined by arvind cannot be a professor of economics at columbia university and a former indian chair at the g. twenty summit professor and so good to talk to you thank you very much for your
time. now professor you have long advocated against the imposition of tariffs and other protectionist measures you believe that india should decrease trade barriers in order to be more competitive but tariffs are not only and they cannot make matter they're also a political and a diplomatic tool when somebody slaps you with terrorists should you just. turning the other cheek. it is a difficult. terrain to balance and one needs to or also take into account the possibility of. protectionism happening against you so simply as. a matter tactic you cannot sit back so you know if protection is being imposed on you at some point you do have to react but this is a balancing act roxanna you know because your own pet is also do hurt you and you
don't want to carry it too far now i know that you have been a fairly complimentary of prime minister narendra modi after he has been of you and yet i suppose he went a little bit against your advice in reciprocating this american imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs with india's own duties on more than two dozen american goods do you think he could have done anything differently without. you know inviting more pushing from the american side but right now we're still awaiting what the government has done is to identify these products on which it says that it imposed that is somewhere in july so before that there is a standard dialogue to happen between india and the united states so i still hope that you know this type of counter kind of the interrogation will bring both sides
to actually a bit more same position in which neither side will actually take their action remember that china is talking of retaliation europe is talking of retaliation any of the united says them countering retaliate and particularly the fifty billion dollars worth of chinese goods on risk the u.s. is saying it's going to impose tariffs i think that really is going to impact the trading system in a major way because that also goes against many of the novelty or. so this is the ugly i understand what you're saying but you know what's also interesting to me is how the trumpet ministration is trying to frame this trade war because they certainly don't do not see themselves as protectionist in fact commerce secretary wilbur ross described the imposition of these tariffs as quote fixing the protectionism around the world and they seem to believe that there are acting against protectionist on the part of india on the part of china do you think they
genuinely believe in that and do they have a point but this is certainly not. the longstanding. by the united states a thing that longstanding practice by the united states has been to challenge the countries in the w.t. all or us or the mainstream deals liberalization in walking off the national security clause in the rules. as not been done for a very long time i think you know and clearly also in the various officials have made their statements. there's a clear sense that this is not purely a national security issue so i personally think that this is contrary to the longstanding u.s. pressure and therefore this is a new game. but professor i think you were agree with me that president trump is unorthodox in many ways and one of these ways is that he actually seems to be banned on implementing his complaint promises and i think you wrote an article
about that previously you know a number of administrations would suggest something on the campaign trail but them would quietly back away from that this is not what mr trump thinks he's doing and i wonder if you believe he has what it takes in terms of the character in terms of the presidential powers in terms of the time left in office to actually change the global. trade system in dramatic ways well you know if we if he continues on the current parts. then i think what we would do to this trading system is strongly damage it in a major way and then the question really begins to get to them is does happen will we be in a position to repair it back sometime. at least in the medium term to longer term in the administration of the united states it's of james's because ultimately the member that the united states is the country of it. gives the lead in
establishments of the current multilateral trading system and so this is a huge backtracking by the united states absolutely and i don't know if you've heard that but over the past few days there have been multiple rumors about trump supposedly. floating a possibility of walking away from world trade organization all together now i just before i went to the studio i heard the denial of doubt by years treasury secretary steven nugent even though he did admit that the administration does have concerns about the way w.t.f. is structured and how it is supposedly being used against the united states do you take it responsibility seriously do you think the united states under this administration could actually abandon the w.t. altogether but you know this is difficult to speculate. i would only say that i hope not i think this is not going to do
a lot of good to anybody at all and least of all the united states because. demented the united states. if it. created this system its oil huge benefit not just for the rest of the can but also for itself i mean in the end remember that you know from a poor second world war the united states gave them. really kind of created this very good. when we're in trading system which we have to be so it's going to be you know lose lose proposition now when president trump talks about trade he doesn't only talk about it being free and fair he talks about it being reciprocal in searching this bilateral symmetrical calculus to what has been a multilayered and highly asymmetrical system of global trade do you think a free and reciprocal can really core exist when it comes to you know trading
around the planet you know sun on the process b. has been a part of our system trading system since the beginning of the get in nineteen forty seven and afterwards but reciprocity was always used in the sense of that even liberalism a trade if you liberal lazio's and so it's a process it was used to liberal a stream and this is a process we had a bit of intellects to element that you know did not go back and one for one completely but now it is being turned on its head you know and my mind you know that process did lead to a huge amount of liberalisation by everyone the developing countries came on board a little later but they certainly came on board and you know the developing countries today are incredibly open perhaps less open then the united states but certainly in over the miss quite a when actually so but now they have turned it around and we are saying that and you know if your parents are higher than mine then i am going to reverse my past
liberalization which i had actually done in response to your liberalization and that is a different game you know so this was the exactly the opposite of the spirit of this a process as we have used in the past now so far trump has been able to get his way partially due to his bare knuckle tactics do you think there is any leverage that the rest of the world has when negotiating trade with this very pushy america it still carries a huge dad could that be used as a tool of persuasion. well part of the opposition really also has to come from within the united states all saw because you know when you talk of let's esteem an aluminum dairy of the number of industries that use both steel and aluminum and in so far as. their costs of production are concerned they have now gone up countries also need to be you know more technical. you know that. the.
human and steve that is announced. reactions of countries were to seek exemptions but instead i think you know the one they have to squarely they end of rather than go for a star seeking exemptions for individually for themselves they have to work a lick to be kind of work against the imposition of that is themselves pressure has to come in more from. the industrial side particularly getting the u.s. industry is to begin to respond is very the damage they are actually getting and will have down the road from the u.s. tariffs now i merican like to say that every cloud has a silver lining and i suppose in this case they may be quite a number of them i know that there is a lot of happiness or grievances when it comes to china its economic behavior not only in asia but in other parts of the world i wonder if you believe the american trade stance on on china may create any collateral advantages either for india or
perhaps for others. i mean in principle you could argue that. if this leads. to the speeding up of china overdrawing from certain markets because remember of automatically with the readers raising in china china is a little bit of a drawing from certain markets particularly the labor intensive products not any protectionist. measures by the united states can lead to a speedy withdrawal of china fronts on the markets and that can open up a. but than it is for the other countries but that's a sort of you know not not the ideal way to create opportunities i believe actually in general you open markets and the opportunities are to be created through competition through better more efficiency greater productivity and so forth now india also meant tains a trade deficit with china and it's quite significant one around fifty one billion dollars in two thousand and seventeen.
